Tire store employees are working overtime to keep the tire size on their shelves at a consistent size.
So, why does Tire Rack, a Toronto-based company, offer tires up to a certain size?
It’s not just for convenience.
The company says that to meet the needs of the customer, the tire should be the same size for every tire, regardless of the size of the shipping container.
“We want to keep that consistency, and that consistency gives us a great customer experience,” said Paul Macdonald, vice president of sales and marketing at Tire Rack.
Macdonald said that when a customer is on a long trip, he or she might need a different tire size.
But when that customer travels to another province or country, they might be looking for a different size, and Tire Rack has a selection of all the sizes available.
“It’s a little bit like buying an airline ticket or getting on a plane, where it’s a pretty good deal, and you just have to choose the one that’s best for you,” Macdonald said.
But customers also need to know the difference between the sizes of different types of tires.
Tire Rack also offers a range of sizes of rubber, so if you’re interested in a different type of rubber than the ones you see on the shelves at your local tire store then you can find it.
Macdon said the best way to understand what a tire’s going to be is to go through its history.
“If you go back to the early days, or even the beginning of tire manufacturing, people would have the same type of tires on the road,” he said.
“And the difference would be that the tires on a wheel were made in different places.
So the difference in the tread material, the thickness of the tire, the size, all those things would have to be adjusted.”
So that’s what we do, we take that information and we adjust it for the customer and we know what type of tire they are using.
“For a more in-depth look at the different sizes of tires, you can read our primer on tires, including the difference they make in how quickly they travel and how they feel.
Tire Rack also has a different range of tires for men and women.
For men, the sizes range from small to large.
For women, it’s small to medium.
